The place is not clean. The room smells of cigarette even when it is a non smoking room. The front staff checked another person into the same room i was in. She walked in to the room, starling me. I can't imagine what would happen to my belongs if i were not present when this happen. Absolutely poor management.

It was a very short drive to the parking lot at Balboa Pier where we were instructed to overnight park. The rooms in this hotel are a little smaller than the average HIE, but... More

Visited this property with a group of moms and daughters age 14. The hotel is a convenient location near all the restaurants within walking distance. Hotel is clean and beds are comfy. The convenient and free breakfast in the morning was good too. Good place for groups.
